6:03 am
can't tell if it was suspicious. >> i wouldn't say suspicious. i would say a pork spot. >> reporter: a lot of time there is are different things that can come bust. >> yes. but we will leave this undetermined until arson comes out. >> reporter: all right and what time will they be coming out here and will this be an investigation will it start pretty much in the morning when they can get a better view of everything? >> arson will be enroute. not exactly sure the arrival time. it could be anywhere from 5-10 minutes. they are on call 24 hours just like we are. >> reporter: crew wrapping up. it looks like this fire is out and in control. live from san francisco i'm tara moriarty. ktvu channel 2 news. thank you. time now 6:03. we have rain this morning and a lot of wet roads. you know that. it rained hard and steady all night long. causing a big mess out there on the roads.
6:04 am
a lot of spinouts. a lot of fender benders reported. and drivers many were just forced to drive slow just to keep their cars from losing control. of course there is also one of the busiest travel days of the year at bay area airports. ktvu christien kafton is at live at sfo. he's been out there since 4:30. is the weather effecting flights right now christien? >> reporter: so far we haven't seen a lot of delays, dave. take a look. the wet roads you were talking about you can see them here at sfo too. take a look. this is a marked difference. you can see a lot of activity now building up here at the airport. it was raining up until about 5:00 or so and it didn't seem to slow down folks that were arriving here. travelers not looking forward to seeing the rain. travelers this morning we talked to say so far so good. >> i'm a little bit worried but now as you mention it i wasn't that worry preponderance so far
6:05 am
so good. >> reporter: now the different story last night into early this morning ktvu cameras were there as they delayed passengers collected their luggage early this morning after major delays. at least 81 flights were canceled yesterday due to the rain. the low cloud cover forced them to shut down one of the runways and alter flight patterns. they restricted the number of landings of 27 per hour as opposed to the usual 90 flights that can land here for an hour. that meant some travelers were faced with major delays. three, four, we met with some passengers who had up to seven hour delays. >> it's one of those things it happens. bad luck i guess. >> reporter: again that live look. it would make sense if you are traveling to make sure you have a little extra time because clearly the airports around the bay area will be very busy today. we were inside a couple minutes ago to make sure there were any
6:06 am
delays. the only real delays we mentioned were flights out to fort lauderdale and boston. really so far minor delays. keep in mind it's early in the day and over the course of the day the delays tend to stack up. right now things are looking good. hopefully it stays that way for this day before thanksgiving. we will continue to monitor the situation here and give you updates about how the weather could impact your holiday travel. for now we are live at sfo christien kafton. we are also tracking the thanksgiving travel rush in the south bay as well. these are live pictures right on the sidewalk outside of mineta san jose airport. they are pretty busy too. we will bring you a live report from there coming up at 6:30. now to get all of your up to the date travel information including what is happening and the conditions on the roads stay right here with us throughout mornings on 2. we'll also bring you more information on ktvu news at 5:00 and 6:00 tonight.
